The International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) is comprised of 1,500 pediatric nephrologists and relevant professionals representing 89 countries around the world, dedicated to promote the optimal care of children with kidney disease worldwide by advocacy, education and training.

Every three years, IPNA has an international scientific Congress whose goals are to bring together the world’s pediatric nephrology scientific community in order to review advances in the prevention and treatment of kidney disease.
